Newgrounds Bbs App 2013-01-19 22:05:47 Reply

Later this semester in one of my computer science courses we have to develop an app for the Android market. I've had an idea for a while about developing one for the BBS here because it is kind of a pain to use. For example, making a reply with multiple quotes can be a bit annoying. I'm not sure what type of restrictions it would have seeing as I don't have access to the site servers necessarily, but even there was a better interface for the mobile BBS it could make things a little less tedious.

So what do you think? If an app for the BBS were to be developed would you use it? Are there any features you would like to see in the app?

I actually looked for this yesterday and was sad to find it did not exist. SO yes, please. That would be amazing.
Lol I'd donate to that.

I lurk Newgrounds on my phone regularly, so this would be nice. I'd like a quick way to access furry porn while i'm driving

I'd use it, I don't really have much else to do on the tedious commute to school every day.

This would be wonderful, and I'd help in anyway I can.

Even though I have none of the necessary skills

Well I'd definitely use it, because my browser is slow and replying is a pain on my android tablet. Speaking of which, is there going to be a separate version for a tablet and phone or the same?

You shouldn't have worried about restriction and stuff. They are no needed. If problem exists, Xaotik's Greasemonkey script wouldn't work already.

I'd love to help deign the GUI.

It will look nothing like the horrible design Newgrounds currently has

I don't think the current NG design's that bad. Sure, the old one was better, but this one's okay.

It's really not dude. It's not humble. It's too busy. It doesn't stick to a theme. It's full of 90's design cliches and it's just over all ugly.

I hugely agree with the 90's design cliches and the lack of theme, but it's navigable.

I'm not sure but I doubt it. More than likely it won't be all that different, maybe just some incode dynamic dimensions.

Yeah, I usually browse the BBS on my phone.
I dunno about anyone else, but text is WAY too small.
But randomly, some posts have readable sized text.

But overall, text is too small.

Of course I would port to all major platforms.

Keep the feedback coming, I may very well pick up this project in a couple weeks.

On my phone, you highlight it all, and then press and hold the text. That copies it, and then you press and hold the typing box thing, and it lets you paste.

Also I'd like a bbs app cause I can't get on ng on my phone cause of some shitty webguard thing. I don't feel like going to a store to get it disabled, and ng is the only reason I care about getting it disabled anyway.

Then get it disabled, because it's likely that if you can't access Newgrounds on your phone then said app won't be able to, either.

With a not really good and fast mobile phone that would be a pain in the arse.
BBS app would be actually great. On weekdays I usually browse through my phone, so an app or a mobile site for the BBS would be great.
